Need help?

Volunteering has come to define Asylum Welcome’s unique character and without our volunteers the charity could not function.

Last year our 100+ volunteers gave over 15,000 hours. Our volunteers are our biggest asset! 

Volunteering with Asylum Welcome gives you the opportunity to get involved in a dynamic movement that cares about social justice. It is also a great way to do something meaningful and rewarding with your time, to gain skills and experience in the charity sector, to make new friends and to make a difference to the lives of others.

Our volunteering needs change throughout the year.

Over the last few months we have had a heartwarming increase in volunteering at Asylum Welcome so for now our needs for new volunteers are limited.

We are recruiting people who want to be Campsfield Visitors or Detainee Support Volunteers who speak Arabic, Kurdish, Tigrinya or another refugee language.

We prefer volunteers to commit to at least 12 months with us and who are available outside term times.

We also encourage and support our past and present service users and anyone from a refugee background to volunteer.
